This is a hotel within walking distance to down town; Alameda Bernardo O'Higgins, all the public transportation, the parks, restaurants, in the Bellas Artes District:a bohemian sector of town. Very close to the Palacio de Bellas Artes (Museum of Fine Arts) and the Escuela (School).
The place is not modern; but clean, comfortable, with great service and a very good restaurant on the roof, with great views. Highly recomended. I am going back for a third time.
Unique Quality: Pool? Hmmm I don't think so. No gym either. Would you go there for the hotel or to see the sites? I am up at the crack of dawn, and out exploring...back late at night. The rooftop restaurant is open till midnight and there is a bar next door with music open late...the music does not spill over to the hotel! Housed in an antique building that feels like an old home, the quirky, low-cost Hotel Foresta is reminiscent of a European budget hotel. The hotel enjoys a prime location for both the neighborhood's antique, cafe-filled charm and its proximity to downtown attractions, and the Foresta is also around the corner from some of the only restaurants open at night in the downtown area. Also, the hotel faces the leafy slope of Cerro Santa Lucía park. Rooms are clean but dated. Avoid single rooms and most interior-facing rooms, which are dark and tiny; opt instead for a "matrimonial" that faces Calle Subercaseaux -- these are large enough to be junior suites. Each room is decorated differently with an eclectic mix of furniture that looks like flea market purchases. Service is friendly, but the staff speaks little English and is not very helpful with tourist information if you don't know Spanish.
